    Your scolling down, thinking what sweet girls, wonder if it’s Thanksgiving, and then the comment on the bed, a tear weld up, as a mother of seven(Yes, 7) how I truly miss them being small and playing together. Dressing them alike, playing with my Mother’s old toys. Thanks so much for that memory returned.

    my favorite of all of your images


  12. Wendy replied:

    What absolutely beautiful children! And, the little dresses and the Victorian backdrop are stunning! As a collector of things heirloomed, I think the doll bed is wonderful. I have many old toys and dolls that belonged to my great grandmother and grandmother. Glad I stumbled on your blog- lovely!!
